FLAVORx CFO Woodie Neiss announced today that the company will increase production of its medicinal flavorings by over 30% in response to a growing demand set in motion by Americans preparing for an avian flu pandemic.

For the past several months, the company has received countless calls from concerned parents, doctors and pharmacists who fear the bitter taste of Tamiflu will prevent their children from receiving a potentially life-saving medication. In advance of this viral spread that experts now predict is certain to hit the US, FLAVORx is prepared to stockpile its flavorings and make them readily available for mass distribution. Compliance is a key issue that determines the how well a medication works. Oftentimes, young children are unable to swallow liquid medications due to unpalatable taste or unpleasant smell. These concerns are alleviated with the use of FLAVORx, a medicinal flavoring system that can be used to flavor over-the-counter or prescription medications. Since there is such a disparity in children's sense of taste there are over 42 flavors to choose from to help ease the trauma associated with illness and medication.
